Beaver Creek Rail Jam with the boys!

 Saturday the 22nd marked the first event of the Ski and Ride Rail Jam series at Beaver Creek. My two roommates were kind enough to escort me over there to compete.

It was a beautiful day, the best you could ask for a rail jam. We showed up about an hour early took a couple laps to warm up, then made our way to the setup. It was a really fun, pretty mellow setup that consisted of two different lines to choose from. I had a blast practicing on the setup and interacting with the locals up there. 
The Open Class Women had 30 minutes for the jam and final, so I went to work right away. It was so awesome to do a rail jam that had a magic carpet right next to it, so if you didn't want to hike, you didn't have to! 

I got a few good tricks on the features and was pretty pleased, but I really wanted to gap to the down of the down flat down feature on the harder line. The speed wasn't quite there but after 3 tries and some really helpful guys towing me in, I finally got it! 

I was really happy to have had the support of my roommates, and my friend Ryan Bregante who took some great photos. 

Thanks again to Beaver Creek for hosting a great event! I am happy to have walked away with 1st place! Also a huge shoutout to my sponsors! Gatorade, Smith Optics, Saga Outerwear, Discrete Headwear, Lyke Watches, Fydelity Stereobags, Canyons Resort, Shred Betties, Snogression, and Phunkshun Wear!
